A segment on making social media work for your business was included.  The overview discussed how to use social media to promote your business and a Q&A session. This is a topic on the minds of many business people and the audience had many target questions on the benefits of various social media platforms.

“LAN Systems is committed to business efficiency,” said CEO Mary Hester. “Windows 7 and social media are two ways that companies can become more productive, efficient and relevant.”

Topics included LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and blogging. Emphasis was placed on the most used and most effective types of social media and the strategy needed to run a successful social media campaign.  Often, getting started and understanding the time investment is the most difficult part.  Several discussions on how to begin a social media campaign were included and attendees had a chance to have their specific questions addressed.

“Each time we present social media we are delighted with the audience response,” said Liz Hansen, Senior Account Executive. “Everyone realizes how important social media is for businesses today, but you have to manage your time and expectations.  That’s why you need a social media strategy that works for your business.”

LAN Systems has a LinkedIn group, Social Media Strategies for Business, where the discussion can continue.  The group is devoted to helping businesses understand and use social media for positive impact.
